The Baby Challenge

There are four coworkers expecting babies where I work. They are all due in the next two months. My friend, Nikki, who also happens to work with me, suggested that we take a Baby Challenge. We've decided to make a blanket, bibs, booties, and anything else that might be cute!

Our first challenge is for Elizabeth. She and her husband are expecting their first child in June. They are planning to be completely surprised about the sex of their child, so Nikki and I decided to go with a palette of yellow, green, aqua and a light red color.

Nikki is making a bird mobile and a bib and I made a blanket. Nikki found a pattern for a beautiful blanket that looks like it took a super-complicated stitch to make. However, it is easy and works up quickly!

Here's the final product!



Don't you love that border??  That's a reverse single crochet!  I didn't even know you could do that!
